iNwine Wednesday: Celebrate Easter with a bottle of local bubbles
La Frenz Winery has long been one of my very favourite wineries: Consistent, beautiful wines made by the wonderful Martin family. Located on Naramata Bench, this is also one of the wineries that I direct visitors to for a great tasting experience with a killer view.
La Frenz has a stunning lineup of wines that includes whites, reds, fortified wines and most recently a bubbly. Aster, named for Jeff and Niva Martin’s first grandchild, is a great way to celebrate at home this Easter weekend.
Note: They have announced that the tasting room will open April 22 to keep their fans safe and adhere to the new public health order. Cheers!
2016 Aster - $32.95
A bright golden straw colour and a very fine persistent mousse. Aromas of golden delicious apples, boysenberries and warm brioche with honey captivate the senses. Rich flavours of figs and guava reward the mid palate while lingering notes of baking spices, roasted hazelnuts and slate will leave you wanting more.
